How You Can Be a Living Donor
If donating a kidney to me is something you would like to consider, or if you want to learn more about being a living donor without me knowing that you are considering donation, you can contact the transplant center directly at either of the two hospitals where I am registered.
It’s important to know that your inquiry and all information you submit either over the phone or via a form is strictly confidential.

I know living donation may not be right for everyone- but you can still help! Consider being an organ donor after death and also, be my donor advocate by sharing my story with everyone you know! At the very least I want to bring awareness to kidney disease and living donation. I am hopeful my efforts will help me receive a kidney sooner and encourage others to consider helping the many people on the wait list.
